A Shadow on the Household: One Enslaved Family's Incredible Struggle for Freedom

Год издания: 2009
Страниц: 296
The extraordinary story of one couple’s determination to free themselves and their children from slavery and make a new life in CanadaPrior to abolition in 1865, as many as 40,000 men, women, and children made the perilous trip north from enslavement in the United States to freedom in Canada. Many were aided by networks that came to be known as the Underground Railroad. And the stories that emerge from the past about these journeys are truly remarkable. In A Shadow on the Household, Bryan Prince, a descendant of slaves, brings to life the heart-wrenching story of the Weems family and their struggle to liberate themselves from slavery. John Weems, a man who purchased his own freedom, paid the owner of his enslaved wife and eight children an annual fee to keep them together at one plantation. But when that owner died, the Weemses were cruelly separated and scattered throughout the South. Heartbroken and desperate, John resolved to raise the money to buy his family’s freedom and reunite...

A Tolerable Anarchy: Rebels, Reactionaries, and the Making of American Freedom

A Tolerable Anarchy: Rebels, Reactionaries, and the Making of American Freedom

From the author of For Common Things: a provocative look at the meaning of American freedom.Freedom is at the heart of the American identity, shaping both personal lives and political values. The ideal of authoring one’s own life has inspired the country’s best and worst moments—courage and emancipation, but also fear, delusion, and pointless war.This duality is America’s story, from slavery to the progressive reforms of the early twentieth century, from the New Deal to the social movements of the 1960s and today’s battles over climate change. The arc has been toward expanding freedom as new generations press against inherited boundaries. But economic forces beyond our control undercut our ideas of self-mastery. Realizing our ideals of freedom today requires the political vision to reform the institutions we share.Jedidiah Purdy works from the stories of individuals: Frederick Douglass urging Americans to extend freedom to slaves; Ralph Waldo Emerson arguing for self-fulfillment as an...
China Complex: From the Sublime to the Absurd on the U.S.-China Scene

China Complex: From the Sublime to the Absurd on the U.S.-China Scene

For more than a century, the United States and China have been partners in an occasionally gracefula??but often awkwarda??cultural-political tango. In this insightful narrative, Shouhua Qi, part of a new generation of scholars whose life experiences in China and the West serve as the basis for an acute analysis of cross-cultural perceptions, weaves literary and cultural criticism together with journeys across time, politics, and popular culture. Part memoir, Qi reveals the China complex as a manifestation of the search for meaning at many levels: personal, national, and global. With the future of the U.S. and China so intertwined now more than ever before, Qi's cogent assessment of the interpersonal foundations of the US-China relationship in the twenty-first century is a must-read.
Rethinking the Prehistory of Japan: Language, Genes and Civilisation (Japanese Studies Series)

Rethinking the Prehistory of Japan: Language, Genes and Civilisation (Japanese Studies Series)

This innovative work uses new evidence to challenge previously-held views on the prehistory and origins of Japanese society and identity. The changes in society in Japan between the Jomon and Yayoi cultures were unique, going far beyond those of the so-called Neolithic Revolution in other parts of the world. Uniquely, they included bronze and iron production, as well as a new architecture with symbolic significance, a new religion and a hierarchical society with an emperor at its head. The Yayoi period has been seen as the very beginning of Japanese civilization and identity. It has usually been thought that all the Yayoi innovations came from China and Korea, but this work uses new materials from diverse fields including rice genetics, DNA and historical linguistics to show that the major elements of Yayoi civilization actually came from the south. This is an important contribution to the prehistory of Japan and of South East Asia.

The Royal Air Force Day by Day

The Royal Air Force Day by Day is a fascinating record of British military aviation heritage. While so many books on air force history concentrate on the big events, this reference also examines the conditions that its officers, airmen and women, ground trades, and aircrew have experienced in peacetime as well as war. The RAF has had a heavy involvement in peacekeeping and offensive actions worldwide since the end of World War I. This book covers the principal operational and administrative developments in the RAF's 90-year history. Published in association with the Royal Air Force Museum, whose library has provided much of the illustrative and factual content, The Royal Air Force Day by Day is a compelling mixture of the great and commonplace.

Mexico Unconquered: Chronicles of Power and Revolt

Mexico Unconquered is an evocative report on the powers of violence and corruption in Mexico and the rebel underdogs who put their lives on the line to build justice from the ground up. Mexico Unconquered probes the overwhelming divisions in contemporary Mexico, home to the world's richest man, Carlos Slim, and to destitute millions. John Gibler weaves narrative journalism with lyrical descriptions, combining the journalist's trade of walking the streets and the philosopher's task of drawing out the tremendous implications of the seemingly mundane.John Gibler has reported for In These Times, Common Dreams, YES! Magazine, ColorLines, and Democracy Now!.
